Default gonna blow up the ga

so i finally am liking my ga again after fixing the 2nd gear surging issue i have been chasing for a month. and now the only thing to do was fix the exhaust leak and lower it this weekend. well it looks like thats getting put of again due to today about 1 mile from home the car started missfiring. had spark from all the wire but cylinder 2 was saturated in gas it seems i have a injector stuck open now and the computer isnt shuting it down. took me 2 hours to figure it out till i tested everything i could think of then it started blowing smoke and hesitating and i talk to a freind and we diagnosed it. so the car is parked in the garage down for the count right now till wednesday till my buddy comes down to fix it.


just wanted to vent since my mom said she wont listen to anything else about cars lol

Jon..my dad has a 96 GA 3.1L. Leaking coolant up front. Did the pump, still leaking. I called the mechanic buddy and told him to come deal with it. You might be able to beat him to it if you start driving now. Cause if I get near that car again... gas and matches....

You saying gas and matches are warranted to fix it?

Me~> Imagine a 96 GA over on this side.

okay so it seems to be a spark issue switched the plugs and wires around and no i had a misfire on 4 instead of 2, switched them back and it ran perfect so there is something wrong in the plugs and wires so im just going to switch them all out since they are cheap enough on the 3400s and get some good taylor 8mm wires and platinum acdelco plugs
